2010 La Tour Carnet, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1140571 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Probably La Tour Carnet's best since their 2001, the 2010 La Tour Carnet exhibits wonderful ripeness, a dense ruby/purple color, notes of licorice, camphor and some toast as well as lots of black currant and blueberry fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with attractive sweetness of tannin, good acidity, excellent delineation to its component parts, and a full-bodied, impressively long finish. This wine may close down somewhat, given the moderate tannins, but it seems relatively accessible despite being a 2010. (RP)  (2/2013)

92 points James Suckling

 Impressive concentration for this appellation with aromas of prunes, plums and black pepper. Full body, with round and velvety tannins and a long finish. Tight.  (2/2013)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Packed with new wood, very polished wine, its tannins smooth and velvet. It has a delicious juicy red berry fruit character that shows a fine elegance.  (6/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright, dark red. Sexy aromas of black cherry, blueberry, licorice, menthol and flowers seemed to shut down with aeration. Densely packed and fresh, with sound acidity intensifying the pretty, well-delineated black fruit flavors. The wine's firm spine of tannins and acids is nicely supported by its mid-palate concentration. A very impressive vintage for this bottling, and in need of patience. (ST) 91+  (8/2013)

K&L Notes

A more modern, internationally styled wine. Sweet finish. Powerful on the back palate.

The 2009 and 2010 are the best back to back vintages for this property. The 2010 has more strength and structure than the 2009. Age it.
Drink from 2016 to 2025
